Discosure: I’m a Carowinds Brand Ambassador (Caro Blogger) and received complimentary season passes to give you an all access experience to Carowinds. All opinions are mine alone.
I recently had the opportunity to visit Carowinds with my nephew and sons, It was their Boys Day Out! We had a great time walking around the theme park, enjoying the rides and visiting Dinosaurs Alive! I personally was looking forward to Dinosaurs Alive because I have a fascination with Dinosaurs. I also LOVED the movie Jurassic Park and recently saw Jurassic World so I was all in the Dinosaur Spirit! I may have been looking forward to Dinosaur’s Alive more than the boys! Here are our 7 top reasons why Dinosaurs Alive is so awesome!
My seven year old son loved Dinosaurs Alive because in his words… “they were moving and had sound effects that were sometimes a little scary.” and “They looked so real and I liked learning their names.” The art was amazing! The life-sized dinosaurs looked so realistic.
I also loved that they were interactive and had the names and background information on each dinosaur exhibit. I was able to know the name of the dinosaur I was looking at upon the first glance along with some factual information based on real fossil evidence.
The Dinosaurs Alive exhibition has more than 30 life-sized, moving animatronic dinosaurs. You walk on a trail through the exhibition and can see all the different dinosaurs displayed. They even have a stink zone, you’ll know when you’re there. Lol!
I also liked that it’s an opportunity to learn new things with your family about extinct creatures. Can you imagine living in the same era as dinosaurs? There are some great conversations to be had around Dinosaurs Alive!
It’s a great field trip opportunity and also has a downloadable education kit as a resource for different grade levels. Great for teachers! This would also be a great troop event for Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts. There has to be a patch for something this awesome!
The Dinosaurs Alive gift shop is great for souvenirs and apparel. You can get anything from t-shirts, hats, glassware, plush , games, and toys. You can take Dinosaurs Alive home with you and it will remind you of your memorable experience.
There is an area that you can go digging for fossils on the Dinosaurs Alive trail. It’s a great way to cool down and spend a few minutes sitting before you finish walking the trail and seeing the rest of the exhibit. The kids love it!
You can get additional Dinosaurs Alive information on the Carowinds website! I can’t wait to visit this interactive exhibit again. Get there early enough because the exhibit closes at sundown. It was so much fun walking through the trail with my nephew and sons. I’m already planning our next visit.
